Ten people will be vying for seats on the Webster County Board of Supervisors in this year's election.
Three candidates are looking to replace current Supervisor Eddie Peterson, who will not seek re-election, in District 2. District 2 includes the townships of Fulton, Elkhorn, Otho-Pleasant Valley, Clay-Roland, Dayton-Burnside, Sumner-Webster-Yell-Hardin, Gowrie and Lost Grove in southern Webster County and the communities of Otho, Coalville, Lehigh, Dayton, Stratford, Moorland, Roelyn, Callender, Gowrie, Burnside, Harcourt and Lanyon.
Todd Clark and Aaron Newell will face off in the June 5 primary to determine the Republican nomination for that district.
Mark Campbell is the lone Democrat vying for the seat.
In District 3, incumbent and current Board Chairman Bob Singer is seeking another term as a Democrat and John Owen will seek the seat as a Republican.
In the newly aligned District 4, which includes precincts 1, 3, 6 and 7 within the city of Fort Dodge, both Eugene Newsome and Marcy Lundberg are seeking the Democratic nomination.
Merrill D. Leffler will run as a Republican in District 4, a position that is currently occupied by Supervisor Clark Fletcher. The seat became open due to the realignment of Fletcher's territory.
In District 5, two Republicans are seeking the seat currently held by Phil Condon, who announced last week he will not seek re-election. Current District 4 Supervisor Fletcher and Jim Reed will seek the nomination in the primary. No Democratic candidate filed for the seat.
